Triangles Challenge

This week's challenge at Just For Fun is triangles and I have just spent hours making my effort and a smaller one to send for the swap. It meant I had something to do during the boring bits of the royal wedding--not many of those because I loved it all lol

I made this wall hanging from an old seed catalogue and the idea came from here -if you look at the link please click on all the pages and see how some of their amazing hangings were used to do a whole wall for an exhibition

                                      This is large one I made from the seed catalogue
This is a small version that I made from a cut down version of a thinner seed catalogue as the big one was too large to send for a swap. Apologies to whoever gets the 'effort' in the swap as it looks far from pretty folded up for posting.

You always have such great ideas Chrissie. This is brilliant. Thank you for giving the link. It is always a shame to throw out seed catalogues because of their paper and image quality.
Regards Florence.
